talking about that the right is all concerned and up in a roar whatever about obama's motto for the campaign which part of it is saying forward right? >> yes. >> so in wisconsin, which is where i am the state motto here since 1851 -- >> is -- >> has been forward. >> forward. >> yes. and what is interesting about that the meaning behind it is that wisconsin should be a leader in the country. okay? so -- and if you look that up that's what is on the state's website at wisconsin.gov. but walker has a tv ad out right now where it shows a jeep going up a hill saying that he is driving the state forward, okay. and then the truck slips down the hill saying that the democrats are trying to drag it
backwards. >> oh, yeah. >> yeah. so i think it's interesting that walker is using forward which is the state motto, and yet all of the right-wing -- >> but he did this with his hands when he said it. when president obama does it -- >> yes, that makes him marxist. >> if you look at his fund-raising, there is no other kind giving to his campaign. remember obama on the power of very small donations. mitt romney this evening -- last night, speaking to a group of high-dollar donors at the it with carlton, you can only imagine how insuffererable that
was. he commented forward what over the cliff? [ affected laughter ] >> he said his new slogan is progress. no forward. progress is all right. i might use that one. >> oh my god! >> he makes no sense. >> there is always hope for progress -- >> who wants a scrambled word sausage. okay. they paid up to $10,000 for access to the candidate. and who wouldn't pay that? >> i would pay $10,000 to make him go away. >> well there is that. >> all of that warmth. okay. let's go to griffin in florida. >> hey, how are you doing? >> good. go ahead. >> do you remember monty
python's flying circus. >> of course. >> do you remember the sketch confusing cat. >> yes. my god i hope it works! >> it seems like the republicans are trying to drop the cat and put in voter. confuse the voter. >> yes. >> so they don't know what is going on so you accidentally vote to cut your own throat. >> that's exactly right. by the way that was a full throated endorsement from newt gingrich huh? >> was there an endorsement? >> sort of. i think the most [ inaudible ] ever which is saying something.

>> i'm king of the moon. >> he tepidly endorsed romney. is mitt romney conservative between barack obama. this is a choice between mitt romney and the most radical leftist president in the history. [ crickets chirping ] >> he is better than that black guy. >> he is not the most leftist president by a long shot. fdr, maybe. >> yeah, or his cousin teddy. >> one of my favorite gingrich moments when we criticized paul ryan's policy and then he said anyone who quoted him, quoted him dishonestly. >> shut up quite frankly. >> megan in chicago. welcome. >> morning steph. morning mooks. >> morning. >> can somebody please tell us what the what dennis miller was
on and where i can get some. >> yeah. >> he was manical. >> yes. >> can i be the official single mom, working two jobs alcoholic for the show? >> yes. good for you, uniquely american. [ bell chimes ] >> scott in madison. hi scottie. >> hi there. yesterday i called the church where shawn harris profit tiezing his hate and i go not answer, but apparently there is a school associated with that church. so i called the school and i spoke with a woman who assured me the following that reverend harris was a good man; that he loves children; and the whole
thing was taken out of context. >> when i queried further, she could not tell me his position on -- you know raising children who are -- who exhibit, you know, maybe cross-gender traits or -- you know little boys that might be interested in dolls, and action figures. i asked a lot of questions and she had no response. so i just wanted to call and share that with you all. >> i think the response is simple. you should punch them. >> yeah. >> i wonder if they punch the little sissy boys at that school. just to get them straight. >> yeah knock the gay out of them. awesome. >> good. >> lots of answers there. >> child protective services needs to investigate that school if he advocates that. >> yeah. >> can a rent boy be far away in his future? >> yeah.
[ laughter ] >> look, i punched him. look at how manly i am! >> i have a bad back! >> i just had to hire him to hold my sack! bag. >> yeah. my favorite thing is your daughter is not pretty maybe you can just shaker into -- la, la la la. >> punch her until she is pretty. >> or just throw a bunch of makeup at her and see -- >> yeah. okay. carol in pennsylvania, you are than "stephanie miller show." >> hi, i'm calling from redneck country. >> redneck pennsylvania, i know it well. >> right. so you can have sympathy for me. my proposal to save millions and millions of dollars for our republican friends is for them to give up all of their healthcare free that the government gives them.
whatever their position in government is governor congress senate, and especially scott brown should give his up and i wanted to get your opinion on that. look at the money we could save. >> how could scott brown in massachusetts his 23-year-old daughter is on his fancy socialist government healthcare thanks to president obama, and he'll have options if obamacare is repealed and she's not on his -- god. just like mitt romney saying just borrow money from your parents to start a business. >> yeah. >> borrow $50,000. what? what is the problem? >> yeah. >> vonseal. hello. >> hi, guys. hello. i had to correct something that the fabulous carol said. next tuesday is the 8th, ladies and gentlemen, and that's important because that's the day we vote on amendment 1.

of franklin graham. >> for people listening, because we had this confusion in california. amendment one is the anti-gay amendment that will be voted on next tuesday, so vote no on amendment one. >> it's vote against. the ballot will say are you for or against amendment one. and you are against amendment one. >> all right. by the way, mom, i'm talking to you, cancel that bridge game. >> there you go. and raleigh does offer [ inaudible ] benefits. >> so those would go away if amendment one passes. >> those would go away. and those in favor are spreading the lie that amendment one will not affect these benefits. it's so vague. it's written so poorly that it could be interpreted all kinds of ways. >> yeah absolutely. >> that's what they did with prop 8 out here. >> exactly. >> all right. thank you honey.
[ applause ] >> free krem brule for everybody that votes -- oh that's the owner of the snooty french restaurant -- >> that might even be illegal to try to buy votes like that. >> all right. i was just spitballing. we'll be right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> are you thinking what i'm thinking? >> all the time bitch. >> good. >> announcer: it's the "stephanie miller show." ♪ and we don't stick to party lines. >>people who buy politicians got to cover their bets. >>we are the investigators fiercely independent, and we don't hold back. >>we're here because we're independent and that's what we love. >>...and we don't do talking points. >>i think the hypocrisy is so blatant. >>and above all...

campaign which undermined john kerry's service in vietnam. dick cheney said if we make the wrong choice the danger is we'll get hit again. romney willfully participated in the bush cheney smear campaign in an august interview. he suggested kerry would twiddle hinge thumbs when dealing with terrorism. romney said kerry is too much of a -- wait for it -- flip flopper.

and that's why he is doing all of these pre-emptive strikes, because he obama is coming after him. and it will be on the economic front and apparently according to the media, romney's strength is supposed to be the economy. >> right. i think they have done a pretty good job don't you on the obama campaign -- they haven't even started yet, and they have kind of ripped romney's records to shreds don't you think? >> yeah. >> mittens yesterday. >> he is taken to attacking success, he has taken to dividing the american people. he has taken to find scapegoats for his own failures finding some way to explain why three and a half years into his presidency this economy is still bumping along the bottom. >> because he is cleaning up the mess that your guy left behind. >> there you go blaming bush again. >> yes. because blush did it.
